Disc 1: Students participating in sit-in begin by singing "Hatikva" and Zum Gali Gali" in celebration of Hanukkah. An unidentified speaker leads a discussion on what constitutes non-violence, strategies for non-violent action, and anticipation of police action. Students then sing "Mayim Mayim". Chancellor Edward Strong addresses crowd in Sproul Hall requesting the students to disperse or failure to do so will result in disciplinary action by the university. Lt. M.F. Chandler of the university police department repeats the request and allows five minutes to leave the building or students will be arrested. Students begin singing civil rights song "Oh, Freedom!", "We Shall Overcome", "I'm on My Way", and "America". The reporter describes the scene of the demonstrators being arrested, photographed, and processed.
